Good day all,
I am currently in the process of designing a HACCP plan for my company which is a food broker/ food ingredient trading company. This is in compliance with the BRC Standard for Agents and Brokers which we are currently preparing for.
I can't seem to find any prerequisite programs which apply to this standard. Can anyone suggest if there are any?
Just a background, we never physically handle the products, all transport, storage and other operations are subcontracted by third parties on our behalf.
Secondly, I have been told that it is normal to have no CCPs on these types of HACCP plans. However, I'm wondering if independent laboratory testing on our behalf counts as a CCP or if inspection and customs approval counts as a CCP as it is a necessity in the process which confirms the quality and legality of the product.
